Looks like Wally West’s (Keiynan Lonsdale) tenure on The CW's Legends of Tomorrow will have proven to be a very short one.

Lonsdale's Wally was first introduced on The Flash, then joined the Legends in the back half of last season. Warner Bros. has confirmed to SYFY WIRE Lonsdale won’t be back as series regular for Legends' fourth season. Wally did appear in the Season 4 finale of The Flash, and the network confirmed he will be back for Flash's Season 5 premiere. So at least there’s that.

Even though Wally will no longer be a series regular on an Arrowverse series, Legends of Tomorrow has proven many times over for the past three seasons that it is willing to bring characters back. The door looks to be left open for Lonsdale to return if there’s a storyline that makes sense for the speedster. So whatever happens, it looks like Wally will still be part of the Arrowverse for the foreseeable future. Let’s all cross our fingers that the crew of the Waverider will call on Wally before long, either that, or Team Flash.

Hints that Lonsdale was no longer a member of the crew of the Waverider started to emerge when The CW released an extended synopsis for Season 4 of Legends of Tomorrow. The actor’s name was mysteriously absent from both the cast list and the cast pic that was released by the network during its Upfront presentation.

Are you disappointed that Keiynan Lonsdale won’t be back as series regular on Legends of Tomorrow?
